It’s OK to Nymph.

Fly Fishing Idaho My first in depth experience with fly fishing was on the Provo River in Utah.  We used to Nymph fish the crap out of that place (along with most other fly fisherman in that area).  And, we pulled some great fish out of that river nymphing. Nymph fly fishing is how I […]

Last of the Fall Fishing

Sometimes in SE Idaho it snows in July… (it has happened before)  sometimes it doesn’t snow until January. (Fingers Crossed).  This year was a little weird.  We were having great fall fishing and then all of a sudden, boom 6 inches of snow.  Then we had a week of below freezing weather, highs of 28.  […]

“Bucknasty Browns” by Montana Wild

I follow almost religiously the works of Montana Wild’s (http://www.montana-wild.com) projects. Their latest video is a teaser of some brown trout fishing that shows some rather rad footage. This film will be entered into the Fly Fishing Film Tour this year and being that I attended the film tour this past year this film makes […]

Winter Fishing

Today I woke up to very frosty ground and at my job, which is mainly outdoors, and throughout the day I never seemed to warm up in the crisp Idaho air. It got me thinking about fishy goals I have yet to accomplish for 2014 and how it is soon time to transition into winter […]

Strip, Strip, BANG!

Fly Fishing Idaho There are few things that are more exciting to me than chucking big meat to fall Browns!   And, since the weather has been so cooperative this fall season I’ve been able to get out more than usual. Littlefield talked about the fall trip we took just recently in his last post.  That […]

The Trip that Never Was…. Kind Of

WARNING: LONG READ AHEAD BUT ITS WORTH IT Ok, when Chubbs, Bender and I get together to go fishing, things get rowdy, there is no doubt about that, but this trip was ridiculous.  Last year we made a trek into Yellowstone to Canoe our way into some prime fly fishing, and we couldn’t wait to […]

Call it JuJu, Mojo, karma, or luck…

Sometimes you go out fishing and you just don’t have it.  Sometimes, you really have it.  There’s a young fisher dude around these parts whose nickname is now simply… The Ju.  Not because his beard makes him look like he follows Hasidic Judaism, but because he, more times that not has the JUJU.  For some, […]

Ditch Fishing

This spring I was sent a photo of my cousin pictured with a 22 inch brown trout monster. He isn’t much of a fisherman himself so it was quite a fish for him to be hookin’ into. I eagerly asked him where he caught it: “The dry bed behind my house.” he responded. He lives […]

Who is Ready for Some Fall Streamer Action

So, I think that its fairly obvious that everyone loves Summer.  I mean seriously, Summer is so great for fishing and I look forward to the greatness that is, Dry Fly Action.  Since summer is/has slipped away there is something that can still put a smile on our faces, and that is Fall Streamer Fishing.

Snake River Net Co. Nets

One of the hottest and almost necessary items to have on the river this day and age is a quality fishing net. When I was a kid my grandpa would buy nets from the local western tack store that were big enough to land a king salmon and were made of that spun plastic-thread like […]

The Spotted Up Cutthroat – Teton River

    Many of you, I am sure, have fished the Teton River, or have definitely thought about it. Why? Because it is awesome, that is why. There is something very interesting about this river. The cutthroat in the canyon section are covered, and I mean covered in these tiny little spots. For those that […]

Just Bead It

  Most of us hear about using a bead system when fishing in Alaska for salmon or fishing for steelhead but who uses beads as a “go-to rig” when fly fishing for trout? I have fished with glow bugs and have always done well fishing with that type of egg pattern but after talking to […]

Chest Pack, Sling, Vest, Hip Pack? What do you use and why?

So, I have gone through many iterations of my wearable gear. I started with a backpack, not a fishing backpack, but a snowboarding one. This proved to be a little, how you say, not effective. It wasn’t long until I was sporting a vest. Honestly, the vest was pretty much everything I needed. I had […]

There’s Amazing Water Around Us

I’ve been contributing to the Frenzy blog for the past few weeks and have never written anything about who I am or my relationship with fly fishing. I figured it would be good to somewhat know the person behind the words you are reading when I post about once a week. Plus the trips to […]
